The news cycles of 2020 have been dominated by the coronavirus pandemic, including its effects on global supply chains that have revealed themselves to be fragile, resulting in shortages of not just basic goods but also electronics and other industrial components.
Digitalization contains the tools and opportunities to prepare our supply chains for a more robust future, as heavy-asset industries adopt automation, deploy robotics, and use software to transform workers to citizen developers and data scientists.
This session will discuss how leading global industrial suppliers leverage digital technologies to build resilience and reimagine industrial supply chains. We’ll discuss the emergence of new digitally powered business models, data-driven additive services and their monetization strategies, as well as trends and technologies that are going to shape global industries in the coming years.
